#99 - Toronto Blue Jays (36-62) at Detroit Tigers (29-63)

Friday, July 19, 2019 | 7:10 pm
Comerica Park | Detroit, Michigan

Marcus Stroman (5-10, 3.25, 1.27) vs. Jordan Zimmermann (0-6, 7.01, 1.59)


The Jays are off to Detroit for a three-game series to play a team that has a worse record than theirs.  That should mean the Tigers win two out of three, eh?

Marcus Stroman continues his years-long audition (800+ innings in the AL East, baby!) for a prospective trading partner while Jordan Zimmermann, the most expensive pitcher on the Tigers, is looking for his first win of the season.


Thomas Pannone has been put into a car service back to Buffalo.  Wilmer Font will suit up for the Jays tonight, wearing number 63.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. now has the MOST total bases in all of baseball, 124, since the day of his recall.  More than Trout, more than Yelich, more than Bellinger.

Heads up - I'll have a HOF induction ceremony thread that will be disguised as a game threat for Sunday's game.
